Sydney is supposed to go on vacation to Hawaii, but when one of the clients calls and moves the pitch up a week early, she stays to make sure the team can get it done.
After tossing around bad ideas for a while, Simon goes back to his old job at a little diner to give his creativity a boost. Though flipping burgers doesn’t help, a comment from Sydney sparks an idea.
The comment was related to an earlier incident with Andrew. After putting down his on-again girlfriend Nancy Cardigan (named such because of how she always dresses him in sweaters), Sydney tries to make him realize he is a good guy and doesn’t need someone who wants to change him so drastically. By boosting his ego, she inadvertently sent some signals resulting in a kiss.
Considering Andrew’s seeing someone, Sydney feels like a cheater, even though he’s the one who initiated the kiss. She relays this feeling to get father, who then gets the idea for the new ad for their breakfast burrito client, cheating on your breakfast.
I’m thrilled, tickled even, that this show got picked up! There wasn’t a lot of doubt–what exec is going to make the call to can Robin Williams’s first TV appearance since Mork and Mindy?–but it’s great to have confirmation for a full season.
The Michael J. Fox Show
Mike gets Eve an internship at the newsroom so he can show her what he does and spend some time with her, but Susan has other plans.
Leigh has written a young adult fantasy novel about a boy who turns into a house and wants Annie to give her some feedback. Though Annie usually has a really hard time lying to her friends, this time she tries to make an exception. It backfires and she ends up telling her how terrible the story was, though she holds back a little.
After Eve gets her internship, Ian gets the idea to get an intern if his own to help with his start-up. He heads to a coffee shop to take interviews, and ends up scaring most is the prospects away because he doesn’t have a real company. However, he has Graham with him all day, and he doesn’t realize that Graham would make the perfect intern until he gets his resume, in crayon.
Finally we got some substance from the other two Henry children, and it was actually pretty good. Eve has been the main child character so far, but this week opened it up to give Ian and Graham their own stories.
Sherlock reconnects with his first case, a young woman who killed her father years ago. He was still a teenager when he learned about her case and began corresponding with her.
Now, she’s come across his path again in another murder case, this time it’s her boss who’s been murdered. Apparently, the man was not very popular as even his wife had considered killing him.
In the end, it’s his oldest son who did it, but he had a very understandable motive: the son discovered that the father had been molesting his younger brother, and this was the only way to put a stop to it.
Sherlock appreciates the complicated nature of cases like this, and because he’s not a cop, he’s not obligated to see the world in black and white, legal and illegal.
Adam is up to bat for campaign donations this week. He’s going to one of the Luncheonette’s former clients to ask for a campaign contribution on Kristina’s behalf, but he gets distracted listening to the man talk about how he started his own label. It gives Adam an idea about how he and Crosby can expand their business, but he doesn’t get the money.
Sarah pushes Amber again about the wedding. Ryan’s family isn’t coming to the wedding because he doesn’t get along with his stepdad, and Sarah thinks it’s odd that he hasn’t discussed this with Amber before now. Honestly, I’m getting a little tired of this tactic.
Well-intentioned or not, sometimes you just need to keep your mouth shut and let your kids make their own decisions, and if they happen to be mistakes, then so be it. Amber isn’t very old, but she’s not an idiot. She is making it on her own, and Sarah should respect that. Once the children leave the nest, hovering and being over-protective is not an option because they don’t have to listen anymore.
Zeek steps in to help Victor with his reading when he and Julia learn Victor has an interest in helping to fix up Zeek’s new classic car. It started out as a punishment for fighting with Sydney over chores, but turned into quite a perfect opportunity to help get Victor reading about something that interests him.
After Kristina takes a meeting with a developer and gets a check, essentially committing her to help push the development project through of she gets elected, Adam goes back to his former client and asks for the money out right. Piece of cake. And the only thing this campaign contributor wants is a speed bump removed from his street. Much easier commitment. Win-win.
I was really impressed with this show. It does feel a little anachronistic at times, mostly with the dialogue, but it was a really good story, loosely based on historical events, about a marriage between two young royal people who are trying to forge an alliance while remaining true to their feelings and some of their other allegiances as well.
The story centers on Mary, Queen of Scots, and Frances, the future king of France, who’ve been betrothed since they were children. Mary has spent most of her life in a convent because of worries about her safety. She even has a food taster, but when that woman is poisoned, Mary is sent to her future husband’s castle, thinking that it will be safer for her there than anywhere else, but little does she know that there’s another plot against her, by the queen.
Nostradamus has been advising the queen and sharing his predictions with her, and he has this recurring vision that he believes means that Mary will bring about Francis’s death.
The queen has no intention of allowing her son’s marriage to proceed if it means that his bride will eventually cause his demise, and she hatches a plot which will essentially lead to Mary being date-raped and thereby unfit to marry the future king of France. But, somebody is on Mary’s side and warns her not to accept the drugged drink in advance, and Mary escapes with her honor intact.
There are many threads and webs and subplots being spun here, and some, naturally, are weaker than others, but overall, this looks to be a good historical drama. The characters are all very young, and once again the CW has aimed at a younger demographic, but I think this is a show that can be enjoyed by viewers of any age.
I suspect historical accuracy is not a key focus, though, so any die-hard history buffs might have some issues, but the drama is engaging and the suspense is pretty decent. I am not an expert in European history, and I know very little about Mary, Queen of Scots, so the history doesn’t bother me.
There’s also a love triangle forming with Frances, Mary and Frances’s brother Sebastian which should be interesting. I’ve only seen one episode, but I want to keep up with this one for a while. If it goes downhill drastically by next week, I’ll probably scratch it off the list, but for now, I think it’s a keeper 🙂
A runaway bride takes off in her “Just Married” cherry red Ford Mustang before the ceremony begins, tearful and distraught, when she accidentally veers into the other lane and has to swerve to avoid being hit. She ends up going off the road and down a hill. She lives, but there is some question about whether she was only marrying her groom for his money, and with a dead wedding guest on the scene, Five-0 is on the case.
Meanwhile, Kono is still on the run in China. No word yet on whether she’ll make it back to Hawaii, but I hope so. This Yakuza thing is stale. (Sidenote: did anyone recognize Adam (Ian Anthony Dale) in the AHS: Coven pilot? Jessica Lange kind of sucked his youth out of him, but he was there for a couple minutes!)
The bigger story is Catherine and Steve as she starts her new job with her ex, and Danno and Gabby split up, again, so she can take the job in Colorado. He doesn’t mind the long distance, but he thinks having her coming and going is hard on Grace, and if there’s one thing we know about Danny Williams, that little girl comes first no matter what.
Also, we get a guest appearance from the ever-so-cool Rebecca De Mornay as the groom’s mother. Though it’s clear she’s had a little work done, this is one lady I never get tired of seeing. She’s hardcore. If it was up to me, she’d still be snatching babies (The Hand that Rocks the Cradle) and running prostitution rings (Risky Business), but I guess Hollywood thinks she’s no longer suited for such meaty roles.
The new episode of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon will be up tomorrow for you to check out! Plus, new episodes of Revenge and Witches of East End air Sunday night! Enjoy the weekend!
